    Product Description

    Gerald Wilson is many things: composer, arranger, bandleader, storyteller, icon, legend. In fact the only constant about Gerald Wilson in his sixty year career -- which spans over 50 releases -- has been his drive and determination to remain innovative.

    'Monterey Moods' is his third release for Mack Avenue following the Grammy nominated 'New York, New Sound' and his critically acclaimed 'In My Time'. In addition, this is the third time Mr. Wilson has been honoured with a commission from the Monterey Jazz Festival. 'Monterey Moods' commemorates the Golden Anniversary of one of the preeminent Jazz festivals in our history -- it is also a musical work of art from one of the great Jazz composers of our time. Features a special guest appearance by Hubert Laws.

    Personnel: 
    Gerald Wilson (conductor), Hubert Laws (flute), Antonio Hart, Steve Wilson (alto saxophone), Ron Blake, Kamasi Washington (tenor saxophone), Ronnie Cuber (baritone saxophone), Jimmy Owens, Jon Faddis, Sean Jones, Terell Stafford, Frank Greene (flugelhorn), Dennis Wilson, Jay Ashby, Luis Bonilla, Douglas Purviance (trombone), Anthony Wilson (guitar), Renee Rosnes (piano), Todd Coolman, Peter Washington (bass guitar), Lewis Nash (drums)
